Excerpt from John O. Honnold, Uniform Law for International Sales under the 1980 United Nations Convention, 3rd ed. (1999), page 350. Reproduced with permission of the publisher, Kluwer Law International, The Hague.
§ 322 Chapter II opened with a brief summary of the seller’s obligations. The present chapter opens with a similar summary of the buyer’s obligations.
"The buyer must pay the price for the goods and take delivery of them as required by the contract and this Convention."
Article 53, like Article 30, emphasizes the role of the contract in defining the parties’ obligations—a point that was discussed under Article 30 at §206 and need not be repeated here.[page 350]
